Seeking Optimization for Windows 7


Recommended Posts


I plan on installing Windows 7 or 8.1 on a hp pavilion a550y. My specs are very very old (Pentium 4) and the PC has about 768 MB of ram in total.

Where can I start for optimizing Windows? In order to use this OS for testing video games (a lot require steam and/or origin), I must figure out how I can get the idle time alone to be low. I tried installing a vanilla Windows 10 on the machine, but the official Microsoft installer just did not work when I plugged my flash drive into the machine.

I would use Windows XP, but I can't because it's incompatible with a lot of modern applications.

All tips and where to start is appreciated!
